"The Examiner" featured Pace Athletics Director Mark Brown in "Pace Athletics Receives $1M Gift From Late AD's Family"

Pace University Athletics last week received a $1 million gift from B.J. Finnerty, the wife of the late Peter X. Finnerty, to support the program and honor the legacy of her late husband who was a coach and the father of the university’s athletics.

A portion of the gift will be used to establish the Athletics Fund, which will provide for the ongoing care, maintenance and improvement of Peter X. Finnerty Field, which serves as the home for the Pace baseball and field hockey teams, the Setters. It is also used for other activities such as intramural sports for Pace students.

The remainder of the gift will enhance an existing endowed scholarship fund in honor of Finnerty. The scholarship is awarded to Pace student-athletes who demonstrate financial need and meet certain academic requirements.

“I am thrilled to be able to announce such an impactful gift to support Pace student-athletes and our community,” said Director of Athletics Mark Brown. “Private support is integral to the continued success of Pace Athletics and we thank Mrs. Finnerty for her incredible generosity.”
